Happy 63rd wedding anniversary to my folks. 

We are still having summer temperatures. Last Monday we had snow and 20 degree temperatures with 77 degrees five days later. The high today was 80, the record high was 81. I look for it to be 20 again by this coming Friday with snow. Guess we will see what happens. I did not bother to wash the car this past weekend since they are calling for rain starting later this week. All that salt on the roads will just get splashed back on the car when the roads get wet. The streets in our neighborhood are covered in it.

Over the weekend we watched some movies a friends loaned us; A Good Woman and An Ideal Husband. Both excellent films.

Happy Birthday to my sister. I picked up mom and dad after work then we swung by Frances' to pick up Al on the way to Texas Land and Cattle. We had a very nice dinner, lots of fun, great food.

I finished the Hamish and started another Dalziel and Pascoe by Reginald Hill.

Warm weather continues at least through tomorrow. I took a nice walk during lunch.

Is it Friday yet? I have been working on a TEDIOUS project this week. That, along with the time change, is kicking me in the behind. I did make it to the gym Monday and Wednesday nights, Tuesday night out to dinner, tomorrow night grocery store and library. Tonight is the only night I have made it home at "regular" time. It takes me about a week to get adjusted to the new time.

The first round of the ACC tournament started today. The early game for tonight is not on a local channel. The late game at 9:30 is but I will be in bed by then reading, if I can stay awake. Two games were this afternoon.

Tomorrow is the big day with the higher ranked teams seeing action tomorrow again the winners from today. The Firm offers pizza for everyone to enjoy while watching Friday games with the first ranked team playing at noon. Duke and Wake both play tomorrow night.

Cold weather is making its way back into the state tonight. Some of the mountain counties may get some winter weather but we are supposed to only get a cold rain.

[Last Week] [Monday] [Tuesday] [Wednesday] [Thursday] [Friday] [Saturday] [Sunday] [Next Week]


I did sit up late last night to watched the Duke/Boston College game which turned out to be a defensive battle with Duke winning by one point. I wanted to finish reading the Dalziel and Pascoe anyway so I watched the game and finished my book at the same time. Yes, between commercial breaks and time outs I can get plenty of reading in. By the way, another good read from Hill. I will not give anything away in case you are reading the series but this one has a very odd twist to the plot.

Today is a nasty day. Rainy and cold with temperatures staying just enough into the high 30's to keep it a cold rain. After I brushed the dogs Bob went downstairs to help me with the basement projects. We first cleaned up the messy corner in the non-finished area before tackling the finished part. Bob put all his chemistry equipment away while I tidied up. After a good dusting and vacuuming I used the dog hair squeegee on the stairs. Another major project crossed off the list.

With warm weather and spring just around the corner I need to finish up major indoor projects this month. Weekends will be taken up with lawn stuff, the usual house cleaning chores and golf. I can save small projects for rainy or no-golf weekends.

This afternoon I will start another Stephen Booth, The Dead Place, while switching back and forth between golf and the ACC semi-final matches and taking a much deserved afternoon off.

House is cleaned, bills are paid, desk is cleaned off.

It is another nasty, cold, rainy day. Duke won yesterday, they play this afternoon in the final against Florida State.

Golf, reading, basketball, playing with the dogs. What else can you do on a nasty day?
